1. Change your surroundings. Taking a trip to a foreign land which could just be a new neighborhood or subdivision coming up on the other side of town. Sometimes my husband and I will take a drive around the city to inspire ourselves to keep dreaming. Years ago, there was a concept called Dream Building in which you went to places that may be out of your reach then, but could be within your reach if you worked hard and pursued it. It was a way to stretch what you believed was possible. We still do that today. For someone else it may be going to the park with a cup of coffee or head down to a new part of downtown you've never been. The point is, new places, new restaurants, new cafes all get you to open your eyes. Just don't forget your notebook! You never know when a change of scenery will cause you to think of something brilliant.
2. Jot down your goals. It's so easy to get stuck in your daily routine that you forget about the bigger picture. Stay focused and motivated by putting your goals to paper and keeping it close by. Every time you get bogged down with challenges or minor upsets, look back to your goals. They won't fix your problems but they will remind you why those problems need to be fixed. I absolutely love writing down everything. I have so many journals and notebooks of ideas, dreams, prayers and thoughts – you would see why I am an author and publisher.
Of course, this is my way of getting my creative mojo back and staying attune with myself and my creative flow. I want you to give it a go yourself and see what you think. I can’t wait to see what you do next.
To Your Success,
